“Travel writing is Sex”, he says provocatively. And “edge”, “danger”. Is this why all the examples he’s given us are written by men, I challenge him? He’s never thought about it consciously, he reflects. (Really! thinks me.) But Robert Elms Taking the Plunge piece on Naples really is fab. It’s online, check it out. If you live in the UK he has a radio show. I’m envious, lucky buggers.

Now I have to rise to my own challenge. Though my Ithaca piece is filled with widows, and women waiting for sailors to return. Bicardi Breezer’s as raunchy as it gets!
